Stewardship is the practice of being grateful, responsible stewards of the gifts we receive from God. We do this through contributing financially to our church and the missions we support, offering our times and talents to the glory of God, and being responsible managers of the gifts we have been given.
The general offering is an opportunity to physically give when you are at church. Cash or checks can be placed in the offering plate. For tax purposes, we highly recommend using a church-provided envelope, which allows the church to easily add your offering to your quarterly statement of giving.
When you set up Simply Giving with the church office, your contributions can be deducted from your checking or savings account. Choose the frequency of the deductions that best suits your lifestyle. Your offering goes to the church on a regular basis and your giving will automatically be recorded in your quarterly giving statement.
People are at the heart of our ministry — and their contributions are crucial to funding our missions and doing the important work we are called to do. We want to make it easy for you and your guests to give — wherever you are.
There are two ways to give online this year.
Give+ Online is a Web-based tool that allows you to manage your contributions from the comfort of your home or office. Connect directly to our church’s site by following this link. A credit card, checking account or savings account can e used to make a one-time or recurring gift.
Give+ Mobile is a phone app which provides access to the same online features as Give+ Online, but via your mobile device. Find “Give+” in the App Store. You can:
- Quickly and easily donate using your debit/credit card or checking/savings account.
- Make one-time donations or set up recurring giving to multiple funds.
- Choose to create an account or donate as a guest.
- Securely and conveniently manage donations using Touch ID/Fingerprint, PIN or password.
Our Give+ Mobile app is included with ACH or debit/credit card processing, and there are no additional fees or software for church staff to learn or integrate. Even better, Give+ Mobile is FREE for members to download and use.
Both of these applications are provided by Vanco Online Giving, the same company that provides us with Simply Giving. It is a safe and easy way to give money to the church. If you use either of these methods, they will also be automatically added to your statement of giving and you will be provided with a quarterly statement for tax purposes.
